eating healthy-skinny coconut shrimp...


if you are like me, now that you are sober, you def. want to make sure that you are putting the best foods in your body. for many, our nutrition was tossed out the door because, well, we drank our breakfast, lunch and dinner (well at least I did!)
if you like shrimp & coconut, you will LOVE this recipe! this is a super easy, quick, clean and delish meal- enjoy
SKINNY COCONUT SHRIMP

ingredients
1 lb. peeled, deveined, tail-off, large shrimp (frozen is fine if you thaw)
1/2 cup dry coconut flakes, no added sugar
1/2 cup whole wheat Panko bread crumbs (or make your own with this recipe)
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
2 egg whites
2 tsp. coconut oil
directions
1 – pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel if they are damp or wet.
2 – in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the egg whites and the coconut oil.
3 – in a separate medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut flakes, bread crumbs, garlic and onion powder.
4 – drop the shrimp in the egg whites and give them a good stir.
5 – pick them out (I used my hands), allowing them to drip off a bit of the excess and drop them in the dry coconut mixture.
6 – shake them around until they are coated and then place them individually on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
7 – bake at 350 for 20 minutes (no more!). They should be lightly golden brown.
i ate mine over a bed of fresh spinach.....delish!! 
** if you like HOT stuff, use some rooster sauce for dipping :)
